Summary

Thought of most often in the context of the Olympics or other sporting events, national anthems are a significant way for a nation and its citizens to express their identity and unity. Despite their prevalence, anthems as an expression of national self-image and culture have rarely been examined-until now. Anthem quality analyzes the lyrics of many anthems in order to explore the historical and contemporary context. Christopher Kelen's research reveals how many of the world's most famous and best-known national anthems, including "The Marseillaise," "The Star Spangled Banner," and "God Save the Queen" deal with such topics as authority, religion, and political devotion.
